Want to learn, teach, and help out? Join our group and become a part of the movement.
Come to the Brick City Tech Meetup and meet people like you who also want to do great things in tech.
View our Meetup site for our next location and time. We meet every other Tuesday where we hear from speakers, hack (develop) our projects, or brainstorm on current issues and activities around Newark, New Jersey. It's actually a lot of fun, with great people and usually food/drink.
Can't make it to a meetup? No problem. We collaborate on projects, ask for help, and post wins to our Code for Newark forum where you can get new posts in email and reply. We welcome anyone to sign-up... you might just see something you're interested in helping with.
Part of our mission is to help the City of Newark open up their datasets to the public. We want the data for our neighborhoods, our businesses, and our future. Click here to see some of the data currently available.
We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we're volunteers that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web. Brigade is about action and you're here because you are someone who takes action. See what kind of things brigades do, or watch the inspirational TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, the founder of Code for America.
